At TJX, VALUE lives at the heart of our business and for nearly 40 years, our divisions have been proud to deliver high quality and brand name fashion merchandise to our customers, all at amazing values. Our corporate responsibility mission is focused on delivering real value to our many important stakeholders – Associates, Customers, Neighbors, Vendors and Shareholders. We approach our role as a corporate citizen seriously, always striving to act with integrity, which affects every aspect of our business.
For Associates, we support and recognize the value that each individual brings to this Company and the critical role they play in our success. For our customers and the communities we serve, we take to heart the organizations we support and embrace programs that deliver services to families and children so they may lead healthier and happier lives. In environmental sustainability, we remain conscientious about reducing energy consumption and waste to help minimize our impact on the environment and do what is good for the business. At all times, we operate our business responsibly, with vendor relationships and returning value to our shareholders among our ongoing priorities.
As our global corporate responsibility efforts have continued to evolve, so is the way in which we report our progress. In 2016, we have consolidated our reporting under four strategic pillars:
Our Workplace, which reflects TJX’s commitment to its Associates, including our commitment to diversity and inclusion
Our Communities, which captures the support our Company provides to many organizations around the world
Environmental Sustainability, which illustrates our progress in reducing our impact on the environment
Responsible Business, which provides an overview of our off-price business and reviews the corporate governance and social compliance practices we follow
